  2. A PF-GC for Environmental Health Breath Assessment

    SBC: VOC Technologies            Topic: N/A

    Pneumatic Focusing Gas Chromatography (PFGC, patent pending) has achieved a limit of detection of 20 parts per trillion (0.8 pmol/liter) for benzene in ambient air in Portland OR. PFGC has a FID for universal hydrocarbon detection. Major endogenous compounds in human breath are methane, methanol, ethanol, acetone, methyl acetate, and isoprene. Their concentrations range from 80 nmol/L for methane ...

  9. Commercialization of Human Visceral Adipocytes

    SBC: ZEN-BIO, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The US is experiencing an epidemic rise in obesity [1] and related co-morbidities, such as type 2 diabetes. Epidemiological studies demonstrate that these co-morbidities are specifically correlated with visceral (intra-abdominal) fat deposition. To elucidate this association, an ideal model, human visceral adipocytes, must be made available to researchers. Zen- ...
